had a dream that i had a neuroendocrine tumor in my hypothalamus. never read to guidelines for neuroendocrine those because they are somewhat rarer, so my dream made up a chemo combination. all wrong though. it’s mostly surgery and a few chemo drugs if needed based on what kind of hormones it releases and all that. oh well.

wish the world could be carpeted. then i could walk barefoot and life would be comfortable. ahh bliss

we caught a patient trying to get pain meds from multiple doctors for “different pains”. anyway, we called the other doctors to notify them the patient was jumping doctors for prescriptions. patient got mad and said we violated his privacy rights. he would sue us and we can talk to his lawyer. congratulations, you caught us… doing our job. anyway, if the hydrocodone/apap 5/500 makes you so sick that you need hydrocodone 10/325, why do you keep requesting refills on 5/500? retarded. hello. we have your medication history. the DEA is watching you too. btw, one of your doctors has already filed a CURES report on you. you’re screwed.

weird thing. turns out my login for my own blog disappeared. don’t know how that happened. hackers? why would anyone hack me?

Top 5 regrets of the dying.

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

in other unrelated news, board exam tomorrow. PANICk!

sold my first stocks today. playing stocks was quite an experience. a few weeks ago, i bought stocks in arena pharmaceuticals (ARNA). they had a new drug: lorcaserin waiting for FDA approval. there was a lot of hype that this drug was going to be approved. it had already risen from $2 to $8 by the time i jumped in. this was the company’s first drug and the second time they went for FDA approval. the first time, it was shot down because it caused cancer and a few bad things. but they did more research to cover it up show that it didn’t cause cancer. but this drug was for weight loss! and america is obese and there hasn’t been a good drug for weight loss for a while. so they tried again. and it was approved! but along the way, it was kind of interesting seeing how the big rich people played with the stocks. there was influential article written a few days before decision day saying that the stock was already at the maximum and it was the best time to sell. the day after the stock dropped like crazy and that person probably made a lot of money selling short. that day, ARNA was the 2nd highest volume stock. crazy. anyway, i’m glad i’m done with it now. mood definitely changes based on how well the stocks do that day. too bad wall street closes at 1PM pacific time. too stressful.
